i was just wondering what you guys think would be better for constructing meals:

Meal 1: p+c+f

Meal 2: p+f

Meal 3: (pre-work) p+c

Meal 4: (post-work) p+c

Meal 5: p+c

Meal 6: p+f

or

Meal 1: p+c+f

Meal 2: p+c+f

Meal 3: (pre-work) p+c

Meal 4: (post-work) p+c

Meal 5: p+c

Meal 6: p+f


i was just wondering which do you think would be better? i was thinking the first one because i heard and read it was good to only stack carbs at breakfast and around your workout. Try to get in your fats at the other meals. Meal 1 would also contain some healthy fats too (fish oil). If i the first one was better, i would of course add veggies to meal 2, it would be a protein source, a fat source, and veggies (as they dont have MANY carbs)

You should have all three in all your meals with the exception of pre and post workout where you would want minimal fat.

Heh Berardi...I just red a TON of his articles, alan aragon recommended him...haha, don't worry he still has valuable info. i'm pretty much in agreement with most of his stuff i've read, with the exception of the no carbs + fat thing. here's a great link on that issue:

i also recommend checking out any literature by will brink & lyle mcdonald. i don't have either of their books, but i've been impressed with their articles.

Actually, I quite agree, when I first started lifting, I did a program designed by him and it had very good results. He has tons of valuable advice, and writes pretty good articles, just that particular one he made a pretty blanket statement toward that issue. Outside of that article, and his over-glorification of GROW, he's a good writer.

Hey Alan, do you know if Colgan is publishing a lot still? I remember you recomending him along time ago and his research was really informative.
